Burr Elm Log 6 feet x 4 feet

Burr Elm 15" Dia



My main Lathes are two VB-36ís, the first one was purchased in 1996 which has a 2HP motor and is fitted with a tailstock, and in 2001 a second VB was acquired with a 3HP motor, also a Vicmarc 300 lathe. I find these lathes are superb and will handle any size of woodturning.  VB Website
